“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

An Irish Blessing .... for ye garden.

May the frost never afflict your spuds.
May the leaves of your cabbage always be free from worms.
May the crows never pick your haystack.
If you inherit a donkey, may she be in foal.

I like the Irish blessing, except the part about being given a donkey. I don't think I'd want one, in foal or not. :-)
I have enjoyed catching up on your blog today...I like that you have included household stuff....that is such a big part of our job description, isn't it?

Dear Mrs. Mac,
I've looked for a suitable place to say happy birthday to you teenager son, Nathan.
May you all have a wonderful time together.

I'm also so impressed by your dining room greenhouse.
You much resembles my mother. She too will sow and plan long before the snow is gone.
Good luck too you.
From Felisol

PS Did you know that Norwegian farmer till last WW, would always do the sowing without at cap on their head. To honor the creator, wishing his presence while sowing for life support.
Even today I hear women say, "May God bless the growth," while planting or sowing.
